Royal Icing (with Egg Whites)
3 1/2 cups icing
- 4 cups sifted C&H® Confectioners Sugar
- 1/3 cup (3 medium) egg whites
- 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
In large glass or metal bowl, beat confectioners' sugar, egg whites, and cream of tartar at high speed for 7 to 10 minutes, or until very stiff.
Use immediately. Keep covered with a damp cloth or plastic wrap to prevent drying.
Thin with a few drops of water or thicken with additional confectioners' sugar.
